We visited so I could dive HMS Hermes. The accommodation is simple but clean and has everything you need, we had no problems. The diving was superb and Feli knows the wreck like a second home, everything went well and I would recommend Feli highly. The food at the center is cooked fresh to order and is very tasty. We...

As with most people we went here to dive HMS Hermes. The diving was great, and Feli made sure the dives went smoothly. Feli, family, and the rest of the staff made our stay most enjoyable, and could not do enough to make us feel welcome. The food is plentiful and very tasty, the rooms are comfortable, and are what...

Accommodation: From previously seen photos (from Trip Advisor) you could tell, that this is aimed at purely divers and not for holiday makers. Accommodation was basic - but very clean and just what was needed. Each room had AC, shower and bathroom. Food: We opted for the full board option and 3 cooked meals were provided each day. Omelette for... More

Although we didn't dive as it was off season we had a wonderful holiday at the Deep Sea Resort. It's located in a scenic and tranquil environment by the lagoon. Located away from the hustle and bustle of our city life we could experience peace. Early morning walks on the beach or by the lagoon are both equally adventurous. Some... More

Our long awaited dive trip to dive the World War 2 British aircraft carrier 'HMS Hermes' was fantastic. Feli and his staff did everything they could to make our stay and the diving as special as possible. Although the accommodation is somewhat basic it was clean and cool thanks to the air-conditioning. The food was plentiful, very tasty and always... More

A wee gem, a long way from our home in Scotland. Our long laid plans for diving HMS Hermes fell into disarray when the live aboard boat was cancelled with two weeks notice. Our late fall back plan was Deep Sea Resort. The accommodation is functional, clean, AC works, and nothing fazes the team - they made every effort to... More

Deep Sea Resort is the ONLY technical diving centre in Sri Lanka, the only place that can provide you with helium and twinsets. If you are going to see HMS Hermes, this is the place. Apart from that, Deep Sea Resort is a wonderful B&B type accommodation by itself. Food and rooms are great! Prices are just tiny bit higher... More

We spent 5 days diving HMS Hermes with Feli and stayed at Deep Sea Resort. Rooms are clean, morden and comfortable, way beyond what I had expected in this remote part of Sri Lanka. Staff are welcoming and friendly and the food is great!! Not to mention those awesome dives guided by experienced instructor Feli. We had a great time.... More

We traveled to Passekuda and then to Batticaloa with the family. We had three kids. We checked the re views and selected the Deep Sea Resort since they have a swimming pool. These days due to off season sea is rough. The lagoon was not ideal for swimming,. Our kids had a wonderful time in the swimming pool. Water was... More
